Mission Statement

Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) helps people improve their lives through an educational process that applies knowledge to critical issues, needs and opportunities.

Description

Michigan State University Extension provides research-based educational programs to Michigan's 83 counties through community based programs.

The Wayne County 4-H Mentoring Program is designed to provide 1-to-1 mentors for at-risk youth ages 10-17 who are at risk of dropping out of school, low academic performance and delinquency. Mentors and mentees agree to participate in the program for at least one year to encourage effective and meaningful program experiences. Mentor matches meet twice a week for two hours at a time. Through case management and mentoring, program participates are connected with community resources and activities including but not limited to: academic enrichment, tutoring, counseling, workforce development skills, career fairs, vocational training, outdoor education explorations, the arts and volunteerism.

Would you recommend Wayne County MSU Extension?

by Capeanne H. from Detroit, MI (July 3, 2010)
Yes because people life styles can be ruined by their lack of education. To improve life stlyes they need the educational knownledge to use money wisely and support legally. and also people have been through alot in their life and may need someone to talk to about their problems.
